Examines some of the most important days in history and examines them with exacting, hour-by-hour detailed analysis, showing the connections that make history a seamless story. The book's unique view of history links days that are seemingly and unseemingly connected-the day the Wright brothers made their first flight and the day man first walked on the moon; the signing of the Declaration of Independence and the storming of the Bastille; the assassination of Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela's release from prison. The drama of each event is seen through the interwoven viewpoints of the participants. Each day unfolds with a thriller-like tension as events move towards their climax. Days That Shook the World is the companion book to the History Channel's eight part television series.
